Incident Safety Awareness for Hired Vendors

Incident Safety Awareness for Hired Vendors


with Chad Henson

Calendar Aug 21, 2022 at 8 am

At times when the equipment needed to control an emergency incident exceeds the resources of CALFIRE and the Federal Wildland Fire Agencies, the agencies hire the equipment and services of the private sector to supplement its own resources. Any private contractor or person employed by a private contractor who desires to participate in a wildland fire and may be subject to assignment on the fire line must complete annual training.

The intent of this 8-hour course is to provide private "hired equipment vendors" with the minimum training necessary to satisfy CALFIRE and the Federal Wildland Fire Agencies generic hiring requirements for hired equipment vendors. Typical assignments include: Dozer Operator, Water Tender Operator, tree faller etc.This course covers topics such as: Fire Behavior, Fireline Safety, Organizational Control, Firefighting Terms, the use of Fire Shelters, and other fire related subjects.

This course does not provide training or certify anyone on the use of specific types of equipment and is not intended to attest to the ability of anyone to utilize equipment.Students who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate from the California Office of the State Fire Marshal. This course is part of the Fire Service Training and Education Program. The course fee includes the cost of the certificate and student text.

NOTE: If you have been issued a State Fire Training Identification Number, bring it with you to the class.
